Climate change is undeniable and people who are young today will face some of its worst effects. Just this year, May saw the highest temperatures on record for Hong Kong. Youth are understandably the key actors in raising awareness. They address issues such air pollution, fossil fuels, extreme weather, garbage strewn beaches and overflowing landfills, rising mean sea levels and the risks posed by coastal flooding. Their efforts are seen in the work of numerous environment-related NGOs and the Local Conference of Youth (LCOY) which shares the outcome of annual climate negotiations about renewable sources and carbon neutrality.
